Really good book. Kensington starts off the book really ticked off. The House of Steele security firm has just lost another job to Jack Andrews. So when Jack shows up at her office she's not inclined to listen to anything he has to say - until he tells her that he needs her help. She's still wary but he's pretty much challenged her to accept. I loved the sparks that flew from the moment he arrived. She is definitely attracted to him but there's something about him that irritates her too. Jack is ...more

The Rome Affair is book 3 in the House of Steele miniseries featuring 2 brothers and 2 sisters who run a high end security firm catering to the rich, famous and well connected of the world.

This book focuses on Kensington Steele who, in the preceding 2 books, has just stayed in the office in a management position while her sister and brothers are out in the field risking their lives on a daily basis. Our hero, Jack Andrews, who owns a similar business, wants Kenzie to work with him to uncover som

I have been following this House of Steele series by Harlequin Romantic Suspense for awhile now. This is book three in the series by Addison Fox. House of Steele is a family run security company and the main character, Kensington Steele is the level-headed one of the bunch. She gets a bit miffed when competitor Jack Andrews keeps outbidding her for clients. And when he asks her to help him with the current client he outbid her for, she wonders what the heck is up with this?

She finally rel

The Rome Affair is the third installment in The House of Steele series. The series features Steele siblings Liam, Campbell, Kensington, and Rowan.

The first two books in the series took readers to Paris with security expert, Campbell; then gallivanting around London with former thief, Rowan. Now author Addison Fox whisks us off to Rome with Kensington Steele and Jack Andrews to investigate a foreign ambassador for the Italian government.

Fierce competition between Andrews Holdings and House of Ste

I haven't read any of the other House of Steele books but I enjoyed this one. Thought the storyline and character development was really well done for a short book. My only complaint is I felt there could have been a bit more romance. Also it was great to see Kennsington interact with her other siblings (even if it was via phone) and even though she was the oldest, her younger brothers and sister were protective of her.
This felt long for a category. And I suppose looking at the page count it was. The plotty aspects of this were pretty boring for me, but I liked the romance well enough. And I liked the families.

As much as I really liked this story, I just couldn't believe that two competitors were so willing to work together. The conclusion felt a little rushed, but not too bad. I really liked Jack and Kensington and their chemistry works. All in all it is a good story and I will go back and read the earlier books in this series.

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Au ...more
